I have to say, this game is the end all, be all for turn based strategy games for me. As a long time fan of Heroes of Might and Magic 3, as well as other less well received TBS games, this one continues to shine and take up space on my hard drive. This purchase marks the 3rd time that I've bought the game. One hard copy, once on GOG, and now the steam version, almost soley so that I can review this bad boy. First of all, forget the campaigns. Games like these were MADE for the random maps. The campaigns, while entertaining, are really just long tutorials to ready you for the random map generator, which is where this game shines. 12 races, multiple combinations of magi, and a multitude of play styles lay before you. That enemy city before you just a little too tough to take? Scorch their lands and transform them to deserts and watch their populace riot from their discontent at their new, inhospitable world. A mountainrange in your way? Level the terrain and march your troops across it, backdooring your opponent into new depths of discontent. That being said, play it with your friends to elevate this game to the height that it deserves. This is the ultimate multiplayer strategy game. Get your friends together and LAN this game. You won't regret it.
After purchasing AOW III, I have to admit, while that game IS awesome, I still make time in my day to go back to Shadow Magic. It's well worth the time. Every ♥♥♥♥ing time. Stop reading this now and go buy this game. If you're a turn based strategy person, or just a strategy gamer at all, you owe it to yourself to play this game. Good luck, and may your wizard towers provide you all the spell range you require!

Disclaimer: I have literally played hundreds (and I don't mean one or two) of hours of this game and expect to play hundreds more. Buy it. you won't regret it.

Props again to my friend Red for gifting me this game. I'm actually going to make this review for Age of Wonders II, and this game as well...

The Age of Wonders series is a classic all-time favorite of mine in the case of the two, a challenging and enchanting strategy 4X game with spells, dragons, warriors, armies, everything. It allows you to personalize what kind of wizard you want to play as, how hard the enemies are, the setting you want to fight in, etc.. Haven't played through the campaigns fully for either, though. Nontheless, Age of Wonders II: The Wizard's Throne, and it's Expansion-turned-sequel, Shadow Magic, are games that Fantasy and Strategy fans alike will be spellbound by. Shadow Magic also definately took what AoWII had, and did some improving touch ups on it but still made sure not to fix what isn't broke. But still tried some different things with new additions for bonuses and tactics. Such as looping the limited production queue if you want to build an army, but the production que is overflown.

For both nostalgia and quality related reasons, an impressive 9/10 to both games.

This game is unplayable. It has taken over 15 minutes to load and the mouse was frozen.
I purchased this game today in a bundle. If I can't get it working, it was a waste of money like most of the other games I have purchased from steam...

If this is how most strategy games are coded/designed, I bid a happy adios to this genre. CoH warmed me up toward this genre, but the way this game, released only recently, has been designed, all that enthusiasm has been watered down.


  • Very very poor graphics. For a game released this decade, graphics are worse than some of the pre-2000 games I've played. Characters look and move like wooden cartoons. Shame.
  • The game has issues with Windows 7 x64. It was't designed for this OS, and doesn't handle HW acceleration properly, causing frequent crashes. Moreover, playing the game in full HD resolution renders objects on screen so tiny they are hardly visible. Also, while playing tutotrial--which is mighty lengthy, irritating, and tedious--you cannot exit the game, and must end its process through the task manager.
  • The worst feature of the game is its overly complicated design. There are so many screens and subscreens, requiring memorizing hundreds of features and buttons, that at one point I was forced to wonder if I was playing the game for fun & entertainment or preparing for my bloody college exams. I remember playing a strategy game called CoH, and it didn't require even 10% of my mental resources to learn that this game did. Why would anyone want to spend more than just a few minutes of his/her life learning how to play a ruddy video game? Yeah, there are crazies out there, which is probably why this game earned an 82 on the Metacritic score, but I'm not one of them.

I'm sorry to say, I am mighty disappointed by this game, and in future will be very afraid to put money into strategy games, lest they should turn out like this game did. This game is a piece of junk. NOT RECOMMENDED. 1/10.

EDIT: I've just learned that this game is actually quite old, which explains why graphics are so bad. My rating of thumbs down, however, does not change, since it is mainly based on the game's complicated and non-intuitive design.

Insane fantasy 4x game with great multiplayer options!!! Random scenario generation and MODs make for tons of fun but beware, it's is quite difficult. Scales well to 1080p despite being ~12 years old.
